If you listen to this show; you will have heard me talk about evolving creatures, races, cultures, or technology. After listening back to my older episodes, I decided to take a break from what I was planning to do and talk about what do I mean when I talk about evolution in fantasy worldbuilding.

However, before you listen I want to tell you what I do not mean.  I do not create all the life on my planet from the first single cell that divides itself.  Sure, it would be much more realistic. However, I am not conceited enough to think I am smart enough to do this.  I also prefer storytelling.

So, join Kristin and me as we look at how to create the illusion of evolution to create a more naturalistic world for my true passion, framework worldbuilding.
